The 9th Annual Curt Knierim Memorial Run will be held on June 24th, 2017. This year we are fortunate to have Step Up 4 Kids head the event in which they have decided to do a Color Run! Curt always put kids first and the idea of Step Up 4 Kids embodies that idea that our future lies within our kids. What we do for them today will benefit all of us in the future.
We encourage you to participate whether you want to participate in the color portion of the run or would like to go without... It is up to you. If you cannot make the run but would like to donate that would be greatly appreciated!
Highlights from 2016:
The 5k saw a couple of high school cross country runners take 1st and 2nd in the men's race, while on the women's side, veteran runners took the top three spots. 5 runners took on the challenge of running the 8k which took them all the way out to Hamilton Lake. Newberry High School's Natalie Beaulieu broke her own record by a 1:21 in a very impressive time of 35:37. We also had a number of walkers who did the 5k and mile walk. A few highlights of the day came from some of our youngest runners. The kids "Fun Run" generated a lot of energy throughout the spectators who cheered them around the course. It is my hope that all who participated accomplished the goal they set for themselves. As for the run itself, I'm always looking for ways to make it bigger and better. A huge thank you to the Newberry High Varsity Baseball Team for helping run the event!
